I don't always remember my dreams, but when I do:



Dream #1 23rd Juli 2018(14:00-19:00)


I was at a firing range. It was indoors and someone was introducing me to handguns and explaining me how they work. He handed me over this gun that was very similar to a Bretta 92F and it had this very cool black and red paint job. I fired a few rounds at the range and then suddenly, I noticed that I could control time and fire bullets in slow motion. At that point I started questioning everything which is why I woke up eventually.

Notes:

-I started building my first weapons in Warframe(Karak) from a blueprint I had aquired earlier shortly before going to sleep and that process usually takes 24 hours to complete. I was thinking whether it took in-game hours or real life hours for the building process to complete when I suddenly switched off on the couch and went to sleep so it might have something to do with that.



Post yours. In case you haven't had any recent dreams you are always welcome to post the ones you can still remember. :grin:

Slightly off topic. What are the gun laws in Iran? Just curious.

Just a lot of the usual "I'm back in college and I have to take a final for a class I hardly ever showed up for" nightmares.

My repetitive dreams usually involve me trying to run fast but I feel like I'm in quicksand, or my hockey game is starting but I can't get my gear on quickly, or I'm trying to get to work but I have to cover a lot of distance in order to get there and time is running out.

 

Also sometimes I am dealing with difficult students in the classroom and keep yelling. Those are the worst.

I get reoccurring dreams sometimes about storms, as in tornados and also one where I'm driving on a family vacation and the road has a roller coaster type drop but it's a couple thousand feet in the air. I can't remember any recent ones too clearly but when I do dream, my cat is often in the one's where I'm not driving. I rarely have nightmares lately.

It is very uncommom for a household to own a gun unless daddy is working as a police officer. Even in those instances, the police officer is limited to a handgun.

In the south-west it is different though, it isn't uncommon for arab families to own all sorts of guns and the police never has the balls to even question them, it's also partially due to the fact that they are much better at upholding the law compared to the police(same way the mafia would uphold the law in Vegas back in the days, no court, no trial, just a few broken bones or at worst, a bullet to the head).

There are also regions in the north where people can own a hunting rifle depending on the region they live in, some of them are allowed to hunt one or two animals per year.

But in general, I'd say it is not as popular as it is in most countries in the world. Iranians have more interest in owning the latest car/phone instead of let's say, having 'a gun collection'.

Yeah, I have those too. The school I went to has a final "final" that I often dream of going to completely unprepared. Which always ends up confusing me because those dreams feel shockingly real.

 

Well, and I really showed up - by far and large - unprepared to that exam. The part I usually dream about is accounting, something which I almost failed a lot of times in the five years of the course.

 

Waking up it always take a minute or two to realize that not only did I pass the exam without a hitch but it's been almost 18 years now that I did. :)

 

Every now and then I have an epic dream. Here's one:

 

A friend of mine, his sister and a few old classmates need to go to class. So we go to our school. Next to the school where the McDonalds was are huge holes in the ground where steam or smoke bellow from underground. The school's main entrance was closed and the entire area more of a construction site than anything.

 

We had to use a paternoster elevator to reach the scaffolding that lead to the only accessible door that lead inside. Once inside something strange started to happen to my colleagues and frieds: One by one they turned into talking watermelons. Obviously confused I told a teacher that my friends turned into watermelons and were still talking, which landed all of us in an insane asylum that looked just like my grandmother's house. In the meantime I turned into a pumpkin.

 

Since we were all rather short by now the nurses and orderlies in the asylum all looked like the nanny from Muppet Babies, i.e. we cold only see them up to their knees:

Knowing the house intimately we tried to escape. Got as far as the entrance when we were caught and I finally woke up.

The last dream I remembered was me going through my day like regular, except there were decomposing corpses everywhere and when I looked at them or acknowledged them they would go towards me so I had to pretend really hard they weren't there.

I don't really remember my dreams. With one exception. About a week after my dog passed away I had a dream I was sitting in my usual spot on the river and he was there next to me. It's the place we scattered his ashes afterwards. It was a happy dream, bittersweet on reflection though.

My dreams are all over the place and pretty dark now but when I was a kid I would often dream that I could fly. The fact that I watched The Boy Who Could Fly about a fiftyleven times probably had nothing to do with that.

@Majestic: your dream is interesting, but isn't that basically what McDonalds will do to the world in the 22nd century?! :p



@Guard Dog: Sorry to hear that. My condolences.

Ha, I thought I was the only idiot who had nightmares about past exams. I've on occasion also dreamed that some old professor shows up and is like "hey, remember course X you thought you passed? Well, you actually didn't, so you have to take it again". And this is considering that I dropped out and have been gainfully employed for a while so even if that happened... it wouldn't matter at all.

In my most recent dream I was smoking. I didn't put it out properly and it started a forest fire. The dream wasn't about escaping the fire. The dream was about me having to live the rest of my life up to my eyeballs in debt, because the fine for starting a forest fire was so damn high.

 

I think that was my first "adult" nightmare. I didn't even know that was a thing. I didn't know your nightmares would grow up with you.

I had a dream that the Lakers signed the best player in the world and then went out of their way to sabotage their next season. I woke up in a cold sweat and couldn't go back to sleep after that.

Only three dreams affected me strongly enough to remember them for the rest of my life. Two of them I wish I could forget (enough said) and the third one was this odd phenomena called 'lucid dreams'. That was surreal. Once I realised I could control the dream, I went completely overboard. I could literally change the reality around me through force of will. Sadly I did wake up eventually.

I still remember a childhood nightmare where I was in an undulating cartoon landscape being chased by axe-wielding McDonald's Fry Guys.

 

Don't ask me how they managed to wield axes while lacking arms.

I'm jealous of you guys' school nightmares. The last time I dreamt I was back in school, it was in the middle of the night, it was abandoned and overgrown and two "people", one covered in boils and pustules, the other looking like a scarred burn victim, led me to the furthest room in the building and I knew in my soul that they represented my death, and if I followed them into the last room I would die so I stopped following them and struggled as they tried to push me in until I woke up.

 

EDIT: Not to say your nightmares don't sound stressful and weird as hell in their own right. Re-reading my own post made me feel like I was trying to one-up you guys which isn't my intention. I just have problems with night terrors, to the point I have an ongoing prescription for anti-psychotics to help me sleep. I'm glad I don't remember most of them for long.

To seriously answer, I keep having recurring dreams in the same setting - basically is areas of Toronto I know but altered slightly so there's a cement elevator where an office building should be.  Other than that I am doing mundane things in that setting, like driving from one place or just walking to a car dealership.  Bit strange, really.

 

Other than that, the ones I do remember are strange but I can trace it down to what I was listening to as I went to bed.  Well, except for that one dream of fighting off a home invasion of pitbulls walking on two legs under a blood red sky.

Bro.

 

Death? Impending doom? Gimme a break. We're talking ****ing differential equations here. Whole courses of them!

 

Seriously though, as I was writing the post, I thought it was pretty silly, too. Exams aren't the most stressing experience I've had either, so why do I keep dreaming of that stupid ****? Thankfully I've never had "serious" nightmares. Never woken up screaming or drenched in sweat or anything. Generally I sleep like a baby, and don't remember a thing in the morning.
